This has given me so much to think about and changed my perspective in a lot of ways. It was nice to be inspired to try to make new things instead of being lectured or scared into stopping eating or lifestyle habits. The Netflix series is great, but as always, the book was so much better.
I had watched the 4-part Cooked series on Netflix before reading this. The book was (of course) way more detailed and contained quite a few parts not in the show. I highly recommend this!
One of the most talented authors I've ever read, writes about food again. This time about cooking, what it means, and even specifically HOW to cook certain things. Loved it!
Great book, great author! Really enjoyed listening to him explore new areas and bring them to life for us in his unique way. Very inspiring to try new things for myself!
The whole thing. I liked how Pollan broke it up in to different sections on food prep: fire, water, air and earth
Him......Audible should change this question
Ha, yes, it inspired me to start taking on some of the various cooking challenges that he did!
Definitely recommend this to anyone and I am probably going to listen/read some more Michael Pollan books.
This would have received a 5 star overall rating, but, that is reserved for 'Les Miserables', and other 'Great Books' - that is just me.
My wife had read this book, and she thoroughly enjoyed and benefitted from listening to Mr Pollan's narration.
Mr. Pollan has written and narrated a wonderful book. I and my family will benefit from what he has done.
Read it and find your 'inner cook' re-vitalized!
